Sacred Heart has a band program for children primarily in Years 3-6. Although we are a small school, our bands have been very successful, with both bands winning Silver Awards at the NSW Band Festival in 2018, and the Senior Band performing at the Chatswood concourse. The children perform at assemblies, school concerts, masses and external competitions.
Practices are mornings before school (weekday TBC each year) and are taken by an external Conductor, with the program being run by parents.
Requirements to join
All children need is enthusiasm and a commitment to undertake private lessons in their chosen instrument once a week, outside school time. Blow tests to determine instrument suitability are undertaken every year in Term 4 for year 2 and other interested children.
If your child is in Kinder - Year 2, and they wish to join the choir, please ask them to chat to Ms Jackson (current Kindergarten teacher)
If your child is in Year 3 or Year 6 and they wish to join the choir, please ask them to have a chat to Ms Conroy.
If your child is in Year 5 or Year 6 and would like to sing at the Youth Mass, please contact Ms Conroy.
